The Problem: The instrument cluster may not provide a visual warning when the brake pads are worn out, which could cause the driver to lose control while attempting to brake, increasing the risk of crash.
The Fix: Dealers will update the instrument cluster software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Porsche will begin notifying owners April 21. Owners can call the automaker at 800-767-7243, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
